Windows 10 is now available. You can get it free if you have Windows 7, 8, 8.1
You can either wait for it to download on it’s own. Or you can force download it. Like I am doing right now.
To force download it, follow the directions at the following link:
- Special note. There is one step on there - (deleting a folder) - that is listed that you don’t have to do which is correctly pointed out by one of the people - (Jeff) - who posted a comment on the site:
This works for me as well. I was able to force download Windows 10 without having to delete said folder at all… As I’m writing this, the download is currently at 88 percent. Been downloading for a while now.
Edit / Update:
- While not deleting the contents of the folder that was mentioned in the article that I provided the link for, worked fine for some people, in the end it didn’t work for me after all. Even though Windows 10 was able to download for me, it wouldn’t install as it kept giving me an error message. So it turns out that deleting that particular content from that folder was the correct thing to do after all. I deleted it, but didn’t empty the recycle bin just in case.
Afterwards, Windows Update re-downloaded Windows 10. But this time, when it finished, it didn’t give me any error message. Instead it instructed me to reboot my computer to install Windows 10.
Windows 10 has successfully installed on to my computer.
